The 2013–14 Ontario Fury season was the first season of the Ontario Fury professional indoor soccer club.[3][4] The Fury, a Pacific Division team in the Professional Arena Soccer League, played their home games in the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.[5][6][7]

The team was led by general manager and head coach Bernie Lilavois with assistant coach Sam George, goalkeeper coach Jeff Tackett, and strength/conditioning coach Brent Billbe.[8][9] The Ladies of Fury dance team was directed by Lynae de Leon.[10]

Season summary[edit]

After a promising start with home wins over the Dallas Sidekicks and Sacramento Surge, the expansion Fury dropped six straight matches (including four on the road). They snapped the losing streak with a home win over Toros Mexico but lost two of the following three games. The Fury's sole road win came against the expansion Bay Area Rosal on January 11. Facing probable elimination from the post-season, key players were traded to other teams in advance of the PASL's February 1 playoff roster freeze. Ontario lost its final three games and finished the season with a 5–11 record.

The Ontario Fury participated in the 2013–14 United States Open Cup for Arena Soccer with a Wild Card Round victory over the San Diego Sockers Reserves of the Premier Arena Soccer League and ending with a Round of 32 loss to the San Diego Sockers.

Off-field moves[edit]

Team promotions included a Faith and Family Night on February 1.[11]
